Other actions...

moveon.org, of all the political groups I've been involved with, makes activism easiest for busy people. I suggest you sign up for their e mail action alerts. These show up at about the right frequency, are timely calls to action on the most crucial issues, and provide an expedient means of taking effective action. If I follow one of their suggested actions, I can count on being in and out in five minutes or less.

Being on these guys e mail list enables me to maintain a minimum background level of activism going on the most outrageous issues between times when I have energy to take more time-consuming action on my own activism projects.

truemajority.com is a similar organization, extremely well designed for maximum impact with minimum effort. A typical member action involves hitting the "reply" button to an action alert e mail, that automatically sends faxes to your representatives in congress!

Don't let the weapons of mass distraction get you!

Here's an example of a design to improve the effectiveness of your activist e mails.
